C New Critics

The C New Critics Award is designed to help develop and promote the work of emerging art critics. Now in its seventh consecutive year, this program gives C Magazine the opportunity to identify and support promising new writers, who often become regular contributors.

To apply for the C New Critics Award writers must submit a review of an exhibition, performance, or site-specific intervention of 800 to 1,000 words in length, by Friday April 15, 2016.

The winner will receive $500 and editorial support in order to prepare their article for publication in C Magazine. The winner and runner-up will both receive a two-year subscription, and all other participants will receive a one-year subscription.

Participants are not restricted by age or citizenship. To be eligible, writers must have published no more than two exhibition reviews or one article in a magazine or journal. Writers are not disqualified for having written for personal blogs or student publications. One submission is allowed per person and must be sent as an email attachment, in MS Word.
